    Alumni relations? Some job fairs? But really, like, none if you weren't (a) an econ major, (b) pre-med, (c) heading to law school, or (d) furthering your work in academia. I'm giving it a B overall but a D for my experience.

    NERDS, ALL OF US! I love them. Although we majored in different things and branched into very different careers, they are still among my best and closest friends. I'm giving it an A, because there was companionship in all the late nights and stress. And we had a lot of fun.

    There were lots of computer labs and dining halls and stuff like that, plus tons of places to study.

    Some buildings were worn down and outdated when I was there, but have been rebuilt since then.

    Okay. The older dorms were more beautiful. The newer ones had private bathrooms per suite. The dining halls varied greatly, but I think we could use at least portions of our meal plans at all of them. I believe many of the classrooms have now been renovated.

    Not Greek life! It's hard to say, because we all had such different interests. I did stuff with the student newspaper, arts, and, well, yes, I joined a sorority to see what it was like. Volunteering was really popular.
